Multifunctional Materials for Electronics and Photonics
CIC
The bottomup approach is considered a potential alternative for low cost manufacturing of nanostructured materials. It is based on the concept of self-assembly of nanostructures on a substrate, and is emerging as an alternative paradigm for traditional top down fabrication used in the semiconductor industry. We demonstrate various strategies to control nanostructure assembly (both organic and inorganic) at the nanoscale.

Applications of Organoboron-based Reactions toward the Synthesis of Macrocyclic Depsipeptides and Related Natural Products
CIC
Macrocyclic depsipeptides constitute an important class of natural products that display a range of interesting biological activities. Recent progress from our group on the development and applications of synthetic methods using organoboron chemistry and their application toward the synthesis of depsipeptides will be outlined. The total synthesis of targets such as antimycin, kitastatin and the ADEP family of antibiotics will be described.

"Part-time work accounted for 80 per cent of net job creation in the past year and the share of people in part-time positions stands at 19.3 per cent, a percentage point higher than pre-recession levels," she wrote.
